Soon, World Heroes Mission will make its debut in Japanese cinemas. In view of that moment, let’s go back and analyze the second film of the franchise, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. Is the plot of the film canonical or is it completely disconnected from the narrative of Kohei Horikoshi’s work?
My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission is set in the middle of Deku, Shoto and Bakugo’s internships at the Endeavor Agency, but what about the previous film?
The second film in the series, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, made its debut in 2019. Curiously, this film also ranks in the middle of Season 5 of the anime, and especially after the Meta Liberation Army arc. From here it can be deduced that Heroes Rising is canonical, but this is not exactly the case.
Produced by Studio Bones, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is canon for the anime, but not for the manga, since Kohei Horikoshi participated in the film only as a supervisor and not as a screenwriter of the plot.
Those who have seen the film will know that its events are completely unrelated to those of the main work, and that therefore they are enjoyable in a totally independent way, as well as usable by those who have never looked at or read Horikoshi’s work.
Here, with precision, when to watch My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, present, for some time now, on the immense Netflix catalog.
